I finished a UFO from my quilt closet the other day and I am fairly happy with how it turned out. The biggest thing I am happy about is that it is finished more than anything.
This is a traditional "Chinese Coins" quilt - very simple pattern. I completely cut this using my Accquilt strip dies. The strip sets and sashing were made with the 2.5" strip die and then sub-cut with the 4.5" strip die. It was a very easy pattern for a lap quilt.
What got me to finish this quilt was that I purchased another groove board from Loricles called "The Egyptian Eye" and it is the perfect quilting motif for the simple lines of this quilt. I absolutely love the texture it creates! I know that I will be using this board over and over again - I think it's my new favorite.
You can see the quilting a little better in this photo - so cool! This will be a great quilt for summer :-)
I used 40 wt Fil-Tech Glide thread top and bobbin in white and I love the subtle shine of the thread. It is my new go-to thread. I have very few problems with it and the pre-wound bobbins last forever. When I have to wind a bobbin myself now I realize how spoiled I am with the pre-wounds.
